I was at Planned Parenthood seven different times. I also was at the Campaign for Healthy Families’ place three times, where a young lady from Black Sheep Coffee shop brought me a cup of its great coffee on a cool day. She was a real sweetheart.
But all our efforts failed. The good people at Vote Yes For Life did the best they could but again were defeated.
The morals in this country have been on a slippery slope for many years and are getting worse, and with the liberal Democrats in full control, there is little chance of overturning Roe v. Wade for several years.
I have asked many people: “Did your Mother abort you?” Before they could answer, I answered for them, saying, “No, she did not. She gave you life.”
I have met many people who inspired me and also some who swore and gave me the middle-finger salute, but I expected that and remain fully committed that abortion is evil.
The end time is coming. The book of Revelation tells that all will be judged. The bad will be thrown into the fiery pit, and the good will live forever. I believe abortionists will be one of the first to go.
Well maybe if you weren’t wasting your time harassing people who are actually doing something — rather than, you know, convincing voters by knocking on doors and making phone calls like the people you harassed were — you might have had a better shot at winning. Not that I’m giving advice, mind you. Please, dear god, keep up your current dumbass tactics.
You know, I was posting this out of amusement to begin with, but I also just had a little realization. The “well your mother didn’t have an abortion” argument is a common one, and it’s dreadfully stupid. But the thing is, it also tells us an awful lot about how those who make it think about women.
The people who make this argument don’t consider that the woman wanted that pregnancy. Or that maybe the woman wasn’t able to access abortion and was miserable about having to carry the pregnancy anyway. There’s nothing in there at all about why the woman didn’t have an abortion, or it would ruin the whole already-miserable argument by suggesting that yes, the woman did have a choice. Being a woman, in these people’s eyes, has nothing to do with what we want. It has to do with what we do for other people.
My mother “gave me life.” She didn’t want children. She didn’t try to get pregnant and act excited because she always wanted to be a mother. No, she just did her womanly duty, all that she’s good for, according to this guy. Oh, he didn’t just insult me by saying that since I’m alive I have no right to an abortion or to support the right to abortion. He didn’t just heavily imply that a woman who gives birth can’t be pro-choice. He also insulted my mother by suggesting that her motivations for giving birth to me had jackshit to do with her. He said that my mother’s wishes, wants, happiness and very life don’t mean all that much so long as they support his agenda. And he said the same thing about your mother, too.
Of course, in the end, none of this matters. All us heathens ought to be concerned about is finding a way out of getting thrown into that fiery pit!
